Factum Radioscape joined WorldDAB and others contributors from the DAB industry to hold an informative and practical workshop in Amman, Jordan, hosted by Jordan Radio TV (JRTV) and the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC). Utilising Factum Radioscape’s ENMUXA encoding and multiplexing software, an ensemble comprised of 4 audio and data services was deployed, with each service having a different level of error-protection rate applied. With the ensemble live on air via a 300w transmitter, a road test commenced from Amman to Na’ur to investigate the reach of the broadcast.
Operating Factum Radioscape’s OBSERVA Field Monitor, a technical team concluded that the transmission could successfully reach a receiver within a range of just over 10 miles (16KM) for a service on the highest level of error protection. The inner-city coverage was also commendable with a transmission strength and quality capable of providing an excellent in-car experience.
Managing Director of Factum Radioscape, Thomas Durkin said:
“The efforts put into organising this workshop will create awareness of DAB that will continue to increase, not only in the Middle-East, but much further afield. Factum Radioscape look forward to participating with its partners in similar projects in the near future”.
Global Sales Manager for Factum Radioscape, Andy Joseph, added:
“Providing demo and trial equipment is a core component of our company’s philosophy. With over 20 years of experience in the DAB industry, and with a market-leading product range, it is our responsibility to enable new territories to experience the benefits of DAB whenever possible”.
